6:02 am
to don't erode detritus continue traveling eastbound a little under 12 minutes heading into the city. no major issues or delays. that's the good news. a little 5, 1880, also heading across towards the peninsula. you can make that drive a little under 14 minutes for you. there. and in the south bay, we go to check on things. a little uptick in traffic about 30 minutes as you're heading towards menlo park. darya james, back to you. thank you ray 6. '02, and breaking news overnight. a big fire damaged several businesses in a strip mall. a lot of damage. all happening in mountain view was about 10 o'clock last night. >> and this morning, cropper sarah stinson has a firsthand look at some of the damage left behind. sarah. >> yet still really dark outside. but you can see this entire strip mall is just kind of drowning in water caused by that fire fight. of course they need to put out the flames. but now there's not only fire damage, but there's also water damage we try and frighten us up for you can see this strip mall, but we also have video that you can see.
6:03 am
>> showing the damage pretty clearly take a look. when firefighters arrived around 10 last night. they saw massive flames and in the video, you can see some of the damage in the aftermath from that 5 businesses are damaged here at 9. '03, el camino royale. there is a metro piece. yes, massage parlor couple restaurants and those are all damage from this fire. this strip mall is next to a hotel rent enterprise, rent a car so thankfully, the fire didn't continue to spread into those businesses. know mountain view fire says the flames extended into an addict of the commercial strip causing a 2 alarm fire. firefighters dropped a ton of water from aerial water hose trucks. no one was injured. the cause of the fire unknown. but that's still being investigated. hopefully we can get a hold of the fire department and see where they're at with the investigation. but this morning as the sun comes up,
6:04 am
it will be more about assessing the damage. hopefully none of these businesses are a total loss because when you have that much flames and that much water combined. it could be a total loss. we just don't know. once the sun comes up we'll have a better idea to have a report for you in about 30 minutes with an update i may have for now. send it back to you in the studio. all right. thanks a lot, sarah. >> at 6. '04. we're also following breaking news out of san jose where 8 people are without a home now after a fire broke out in the early morning hours. this was on south sunset avenue at about 3. this morning. so while you were sleeping, firefighters were called out after several trees caught fire and then that spread to a the cause of why those trees copper in the first place is still under control to carry cesium it. and you can see how close the trees are homes all that smoke when it's that engulfed. >> like in the end, the firefighters are there. it's it's amazing that those people got out, you know, and as we're talking about this, you
6:05 am
know, one fire this morning. we're also taking a moment to remember what happened 30 years ago today. the oakland hills fire devastated the bay area. 25 people died. >> many more were injured. in fact, more than a 100 more were injured. yeah. and you look at this videotape from 1991 and. >> it brings back vivid and scary memories and a lot of lessons that we've learned since then, a lot of improvements in firefighting. kron four's will tran is in oakland. taking a look at the look back with us. i will. >> we are in front of station 7 where it 8 o'clock this morning. we will talk to the assistant chief with the time was on the front lines as a firefighters. so we will get firsthand account of how scary the situation was. and this was a game changer because it sounds strange to say, but they were not on the same page at the time fire hoses did not match up from city to city and county to county turning a disaster to something that was probably bigger than it should
6:06 am
have been because they could not fully attack it. they couldn't even communicate on the same frequency, the same system. here's video from back in 1991 this fire actually started the day before with a grass fire which the fire department thought they put it out completely and then it just kicked up and then raced through the oakland hills. by the time it was done, guys, 2800 homes were destroyed. more than 440 apartment complexes units went up in flames. he talked about the destruction as far as lives more than 150 people were injured. 25 people killed. it changed the whole landscape of this area to the point where they couldn't even come up to this certain areas because cars are blocking the roadway. they were blocking the fire hydrants. the ambulances could not even come here. anything that could go wrong. did go wrong, including, as i mentioned, they can even plug in the hoses because they did
6:07 am
not match. now they learn from it. they move forward with it. we got a chance to talk to a firefighter over the weekend. here's what they say about the lessons learned. >> highlight the great things that have come about that terrible tragedy, which is government. a community partnership. the relationship that we have now with the north hills community association, fire safe coalition. the establishment of our core and search emergency preparedness programs has been instrumental for us to ensure that what happened 30 years ago with the loss of 25 boxes and happen again. >> okay. so let's talk about what they did moving forward. they actually during the fire fighting efforts skies. they actually had to call in nasa to help out nasa ames in mountain view. they actually have the look down on it from space to see some of the hot spots. i'm sure they use it now. but back then they actually had to get nasa involved a look at the hot spots to tell the firefighters
6:08 am
which were some of the hottest areas go there, attack that location and then go from there to try to put out the fire. it took them 4 days to control the fire weeks to put it out completely. you know, we covered fires all the time on neuse and james story. i don't know what a 3 alarm or for a line. but i know a big fire when we see it, when we say 5 alarm fire, it looks huge right with all the resources. they say the equivalent by the time this fire was over. it was a 107 alarm fire. >> just to just to pat yet to put in perspective how much firefighting equipment was thrown at that fire will that was a massive undertaking. thank you very much. time now is 6 and here's a big story. the fda is expected to announce it is okay to mix and match. >> the booster shot that you get. for example, if you got the moderna vaccine, you could get a pfizer booster study found people who originally got the j and j shot and then
6:09 am
they got the moderna booster. they saw their antibody levels increased call for spoke with ucsf infectious disease expert doctor peter chin. hong about what this could mean when you're looking for a booster. >> flexibilities. the name of the game. and rather than stick to the same company. recommendation hopefully if endorsed by the cdc allow americans to get whatever is convenient. but i know that some people may have had a bad reaction to maybe they you know, the try a different kind of vaccine. nevertheless, when you mix and match from both studies in the uk as well as recent studies from the nih show that is both safe and very, very effective. >> so he's not saying you have to go out of your way to get the same one. and you have to go out of your way to get a different one mix and match is fine. same in. same is fine. the fda could authorize the moderna booster as soon as this week. and kids in san francisco who get vaccinated.
6:10 am
could they get a shot to go to college for free. look at a full ride at san francisco state san francisco mayor london breed just announced this program where anybody who lives in san francisco and is 12 to 17 who gets shot is going to be rolled in a drawing and then they're going to choose 10 winners. >> and winners are going to get a full four-year scholarship. >> to san francisco state university. you can first enter this coming monday. and you have until november 13th to get a shot. we should know and you're like, well, my kid already got the shot. children 12 to 17 who already are vaccinated. they can still enter the drying. we have all the rules about the dry and details on kron 4 dot com and as a parent, i would say go out of your way to make sure that you register your kid in that drives. that is quite the prize get a shot, to have a shot at free college about that. >> 6.10 is that i'm speaking of getting vaccinated berkeley high school is going to be

6:43 am
>> just how dry it is. the vice president came to california in one area just to point it out. and steph curry and the warriors starting the new season on the road tonight against the the plan for real or pre season. we'll talk to coach kurt. the x-rays from your urgent care visit look good.

6:46 am
each year. the western regional climate center measures, water levels between october first all the way to the end of september of the next year and they take a look what turns out this past year. the state total less than 12 inches of rain and snow. all together for the whole year. that was it 12 inches actually a little less. yeah. less than half the average. and you know what i remember when it was that low. do you now. the last time james was back in i remember that was a dry years back when you're knee high to a grasshopper. >> that's right. 87 1% of california apparently under extreme drought conditions right now. >> vice president kamala harris saw it firsthand. >> yeah. so here she is walking up to mead lake mead, which is actually the largest reservoir in the u.s.. and it doesn't look so big anymore. does it looks like a lot of beach. >> of all the western states. 90% of the western states are facing some level of drought.
6:47 am
so when we look at what's happening here. we know this is about this lake, but it is about a region is about our nation. >> and so the vice president is pushing for more investments to try and fight climate change. fact that a big part of the president's bipartisan infrastructure deals will seek to make any headway on that. but you look at these pictures. there's a i see that they're trying to solve it with the whole infrastructure but. >> say that my my solution was not going to work. that was mine didn't cause just a i was like free know where we're going to go to areas that did have a lot of rain by bottles of water like florida or new york or remember when it was and then you would come back and import bottles. we'd all do that as we traveled and little by little we're part of the solution burning all that jet fuel to bring bottles of water. but so you're saying that i don't think it's feeling out out. keep thinking. let's go back to their center where john is keeping an on the drought. it would definitely be a start at
6:48 am
but we definitely need mother nature to come through for us. >> and that is something that's actually going to happen in this forecast. and what a nice thing to finally be talking about. you're nor weather center forecast may be getting wet, but we are still in the midst of that drought is obviously we were just talking about. you can see in the deepest of red that extreme category of drought, which is the exceptional category gripping much of the bay area. really most of the state at this point and also a lot of the west coast. you can see stretching all the way up into the pacific northwest. the northern rockies, the western great plains and most of the western states being affected by at least some form of drought. so that's why we're talking rainfall these next few days. it is so welcome. today is going to be a dry one ahead of tonight, showers that make their way along this frontal boundary which is pushing on across the region resulting in that first dose of rainfall. the first of many doses that are going to be very widespread as we make our way through this forecast. heavy rainfall at times into our evening hours tonight.
